Health Tips

Most people don't have any problems when they fly, but it's possible to make airplane travel safer and more comfortable. Here are some tips:

  • Carry enough of all of your medicines in your carry-on luggage. Ask your doctor whether you should change your dosages if your eating and sleeping times will change at your destination. Bring enough medicine to last your whole trip. Take extra medicine with you in case your return trip is delayed.

  • If you have diabetes or epilepsy, carry a notification and identification card  Have the name and phone number of your doctor with you in case of an emergency. Remember to bring along the names and dosages of all of your medicines.

  • The air in airplanes is dry, so drink, decaffeinated beverages and water to avoid becoming dehydrated.

What can I do about jet lag?

  • Get plenty of sleep before you leave.

  • Eat well-balanced meals.

  • Avoid overeating.

  • Exercise as much as you can on your trip.

  • Use sleep medicines for only a few days.

  • Get used to a new time zone by going along with the local meal and bedtime schedules.

Melatonin may help with jet lag, but no one knows how long it can be used safely. Tell your doctor if you plan to take melatonin or any other herbal or alternative medicines.

What about pain in my ears?

If your ears hurt when you fly, try taking a decongestant medicine (such as pseudoephedrine) before you get on the plane. You can also swallow often and chew gum during the flight. Babies can suck on bottles or a pacifiers during the flight.

Eat plenty of fish -- fish oil helps prevent headaches.
So does ginger, which reduces inflammation and pain.

Don't Start!

Don't you just hate it when you've installed a program that insists on starting itself when you boot the computer? You know the drill. You install something and it places an icon in your system tray.
Now, all those little icons you see in your system tray represent programs that are RUNNING. If a bunch of stuff loads when you start your computer, you may be maxing out your system before you launch your first regular program. So, if you find your computer getting progressively slower as you add more software, it could be that these system tray icons are, at least partially, at fault.
In addition, program running in your system tray can cause any (or all) of the following problems:

- Sluggish system speed
- Frequent lockups / illegal operations
- Software install problems
- Difficulty in running some programs
The more of these programs you have running, the more likely it is that you're going to see one or more of the problems mentioned above. Granted, System Tray programs are not the only cause for the conditions mentioned above, but they are the first place to look.
So, how do you keep all these unwanted programs at bay?
1. Click the Start button and select Run...
2. Next, type in:
Then hit OK.

 Aromatherapy - Natural Healing
In this issue, we shall see how Aromatherapy works and affects the chemistry of the body.  We have said earlier that each essential oil has a unique pharmacological effect. When an essential oil is inhaled, the molecules enter the nasal cavity and reach the limbic region of the brain. This region is responsible for the memories and the emotions in an individual and it also influences the glands that secrete hormones controlling the blood pressure, stress, fear, ecstasy, heart rate, breathing etc. The essential oils are made up of carbon molecules that are able to pass through the blood brain barrier. Since these oils are electrochemicals of a similar type to be found in the brain, they not only have a direct affect on the parts of the brain but also help improve nerve synapses. Thus, they influence the hormonal functions mentioned above. Depression and other dysfunctions that are a result of chemical imbalance can also be changed. In addition to all this, the essential oils are also capable of interrupting the pain arc with their electrochemical action. They change our awareness of the ongoing pain. The pain may still be there, but the brain doesn’t perceive it anymore….the anesthetic effect !
Depending upon the method of application, the essential oils may also enter the blood stream via skin and lungs. Once in the blood stream, they trigger other neuro-chemicals in the body like Encephalin and Serotonin, that play a specific role of promoting pain relief, sleep, calm, happiness, stress relief, fear relief etc.
This is how the essential oils have a profound effect in balancing the psychology and physiology of a human being and it is up to a qualified Aromatherapist to choose the right combination of essential oils for the right chemical effect.

 Do Unto Others As You Wish Others To Unto You 
Dear Friends…how are you? Enjoying the scorching heat of summers!!! …
The hot weather reminds us to pray to Allah to save us from the intense heat on Day of Judgment and the fire of Hell. May Allah always keep us among His true followers.  Ameen.
Faith groups differ greatly in their concepts of deity, other beliefs and practices. Similarly cultural preferences vary across the globe. But there is near unanimity of opinion among the world's various historical religions on how one person should treat another. And that is summed into the phrase that forms our topic of discussion this time.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Such simple words - yet how difficult it is to follow. Our religion emphasizes this by saying “Not one of you is a believer until you wish for other believers what you wish for yourself.” (Narrated from Hadith book).
Holy Prophet preached Islam with wisdom. Once a man came up to Holy Prophet requesting for permission to allow him to do a bad deed with someone else. Holy Prophet asked that person if he would allow someone else to do the same bad deed to him or any of his relative. The man replied “Certainly not”. Thus the Prophet made him realize that likewise no one else also desires to be hurt or humiliated.
We consider ourselves to be separate from everything else. It is not so. “Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.”(~Chief Seattle) What we think, what we say, and what we do affect everything else in the universe in the same way that it affects us.
We should treat people as we would like to be treated. I remember my little cousin complaining to her mother of the inhospitable attitude of her classmates. My aunt’s reply to her little one was, “It's no use complaining that your classmates are unfriendly, when you haven't been friendly to them ... Deal with others as you would desire yourself to be dealt with”.
It is not easy for others to continue with harsh attitude if you are consistently well mannered and pleasant with them. They will finally become polite and welcoming.
Treat others as you would want others to treat you. Be kind. Be patient. Be polite. Be caring. Be trustworthy. Be honest. Before you speak, be watchful and careful of how your words will affect the one you're speaking to. Before you utter a lie, question yourself if you would appreciate that person lying to you. Before you sneak that small, insignificant item from your school or any place you visit, ask yourself if you would be glad about someone coming to your home and taking something away they thought was insignificant? Before being impolite and selfish, think how you would feel if someone is impolite and selfish with you. Would these things make you feel good or otherwise? If you are going to be heard by these, so is the other person. 
There are many morals by which we live, but Do unto others as you would have others do unto you symbolize our most cherished value.
Ending with a beautiful prose from a poem “Letter from Heaven” By Ruth Ann

 It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
